DICE could consider early access for future Battlefield titles

DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson has said that the team is interested in allowing an early access model for the game.

This would basically allow players to gain access to an early unfinished version of the title and help them shape the direction of the game and its features.

“We have nothing to announce, but we are having discussions when it comes to [early access],” He told GameInformer.

“It comes not from a business perspective, but more from a perspective of if it would help us have a stable launch of the game,” Troedsson said.

Battlefield 4 came under a lot of criticism for it's quality when it launched, due to the fact that it failed to function properly.  So giving the community the chance to provide feedback could be invaluable to DICE, says Troedsson.

“We probably wouldn’t open the floodgates for everyone, but we might do it for geographical territories or people who bought the last game,” Troedsson suggested.

“It is something we are considering, not from a business standpoint, but from one of creating quality in our products.”

I think just the goodwill that they would engender alone would make this a worthwhile move. Battlefield 4 had been rushed out (due to certain commercial factors, no doubt) but if they'd adopted this particular model of game development, I couldn't see them being able to ship a product so fraught with issues. So yes, DICE, please make this happen.

From the beta it is fun but it does seem more like an expansion rather than a full on new release.
